Join hosts and Guild members Bob Seymour (University of Maine Professor Emeritus) and Ali Kosiba (University of Vermont Assistant Professor) for a day-long, intensive field discussion of how emerging concerns about carbon and climate can influence ecological silvicultural systems. We will visit the stands discussed by Kosiba and Seymour in their Northeast Silviculture Institute for Foresters’ presentation (video) about management options for forest carbon, along with other stands treated with various irregular shelterwood prescriptions in 2017. Wicopy Woods, a Guild Model Forest in Sebec Maine, has been managed by Guild members since 1968 and has twice been named Maine’s Outstanding Tree Farm in 1983 and 2020. This tour is designed for a forester audience. Continuing education credits are pending.


Meet at the log landing off the North Road at 8:30 a.m. for refreshments. GPS coordinates and directions will be sent to registered participants. Tour will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end by 3:00 p.m. Bring a lunch, water, and bug repellent for a full day in the woods. After the tour, we will gather at Bissell Three Rivers Brewery, arguably Maine’s best brewery, in nearby Milo (6 miles away).
